"A Master Catalog for Jewish Genealogy: The DoJR Project - What You Need to Know", Marlis Glaser Humphrey

The biggest barrier genealogists encounter is the absence of the records they need. The IAJGS has launched a project to address that need. The Documentation of Jewish Records Worldwide project (DoJR) is creating a comprehensive, crowdsourced on-line catalog of available record collections, JCat. JCat will answer the question, "What records are available for my town" and will provide a home for exposing record collections previously hidden or unknown. We will discuss the progress of the project and how you can help bring more of your town's records to light.

Speaker: Marlis Glaser Humphrey is the industry's foremost expert on next generation family history publishing, a professional genealogist, and a frequent speaker at NGS, FGS, IAJGS, and RootsTech conferences. She is President of the Florida State Genealogical Society, Immediate Past President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Director at Large of the National Genealogical Society and Chairman of the Documentation of Jewish Records (DoJR) Worldwide Project. Marlis holds a MS in Management of Technology and a BA in Russian.
